The coronavirus is no match for Parks and Recreation‘s Ron Swanson.

On Wednesday, actor Nick Offerman brought back his iconic character in a teaser for the show’s upcoming reunion episode, where he brags that living in quarantine is what he’s best at. “I’ve built up about a 12-year supply of venison jerky,” Offerman tells co-star Amy Poehler (who plays Leslie Knope) in a videoconference call from his remote cabin. He then offers to ship her some, but warns her that she would “probably have to get your incisor teeth sharpened.” When she asks if he practiced social distancing while traveling to his cabin, he replies, “I’ve been practicing social distancing since I was 4 years old.”

Poehler and Offerman will be joined by original Parks and Rec co-stars Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari, Retta, and Jim O’Heir when the reunion airs Thursday night (tonight) at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.
